Forum: netlabels Subject: “NOISE….THE EDGE BETWEEN ANNOYANCE AND BLISS”: ARCHIVE NOISE GENRE

I like Torben Sangild’s characterization of noise: “Noise is often the edge between annoyance and bliss.” [The Aesthetics of Noise, http://www.ubu.com/papers/noise.html]. In the same paper he gives three manifestations of noise: (1) Acoustic noises are sounds that are “impure and irregular, neither tones nor rhythm - roaring, pealing blurry sounds …”, (2) communicative noise disturbs or “distorts the signal”being transmitted or communicated, and (3) subjective noise are sounds that are often considered “unpleasant.”

In another paper, he identifies three characters or “gestures” of noise music: (1) Expressionist noise is extroverted, emphasizing the outward expressions of such emotions as anger, hurt, apprehension, and elation, (2) introvert noise is inwardly directed - soft and intimate, and (3) minimal noise “is a gesture of detachment“ and can be contemplative, mesmerizing, and trance-like [Noise - Three Musical Gestures, The Journal of Music and Meaning, vol. 2, 2004, section 4].

Here’s a selection of noisy soundscapes, both familiar and obscure, from the Archive’s audio collections whose sounds range from the harsh and irritating to the sublime and ecstatic, from the outwardly emotional to the introspective.

actually LAJ, could you email me at sundara.uk@gmail.com ?

i'm in the process of writing a script that'll either cycle through playlists or choose them randomly for hippocamp.net radio - some of your playlists would be perfect.

email me if you're up for it.
